While neighboring countries have progressed from past woes and developed better communities and living conditions for their citizens, Guatemala's rural inhabitants are still mired in abject poverty and victim to extreme weather. The women and children within this group are often abandoned and/or abused, often showing medical anomalies not seen elsewhere. Initial medical interventions for these anomalies necessarily turned into social interventions in order to properly and holistically address this group's malaise.

FFF provides much needed shelter, food, and essential equipment in exchange for an educational, job training and entrepreneurial commitment. The items improve living and welfare conditions for the women and children, and the knowledge transfer transitions them from complacency and hopelessness. The vetting process is thorough and the women know in advance they have three years to turn their lives around with assistance at each step along the way. The FFF team does an incredible amount of great work on a shoestring budget - a great feat considering that the group has only been in around for three years!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

- Provide professional mentors on the ground. - Create a formal coop among the women. - Develop tighter communities for the women (hard to implement when the women have sentimental ties to the land).
